The operative word is REUPTAKE. By blocking the reuptake, the medicine stops the neurotransmitter from going back to the neuron that released it. This leaves more neurotransmitter hanging around between the neurons, so the second neuron can receive more. It is like telling the waitress to keep the change, instead of taking the change back.
