Could using a Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) inhaler cause heart palpitations?

In brief: Potentially yes

Particularly if you use the Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) inhaler more than it is prescribed to be used, since it is a beta agonist and in high doses, can possibly cause arrhythmias that would be manifested as palpitations.
