In brief: Yes
Depending on how dependent you are on pacemaker, taser may interfere with pacemaker function.
Unless taser is directed over pacemaker pulse generator, it should work okay. However, it needs to be checked to be sure. Key is to avoid any high voltage, high electromagnetic force or magnetic forces if you have a pacemaker.
