Dopamine uptake inhibitors are "drugs that block the transport of dopamine into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. Most of the adrenergic uptake inhibitors also inhibit dopamine uptake."[1]

Dopamine uptake inhibitors act on dopamine plasma membrane transport proteins.

Examples include amphetamines, bupropion, cocaine, and methylphenidate. Some of these drugs are also adrenergic uptake inhibitors.
