Brief Answer: Yes it can sir Detailed Answer: Hello sir and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. Yes it can sir. Although not in everybody, studies have reported rhythm disturbances like atrial fibrillation and bradycardia (which is a slower rhythm). Other individuals just experienced temporary change in heart rate which stabilized after the substance cleared from their system. I hope you find my response helpful sir. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you. Best wishes.
