That's an interesting statement. Tachycardia is a side effect of many drugs that do not inhibit the reuptake of any neurotransmitters at all. Some instead block acetylcholine receptors. Anticholinergic drugs produce tachycardia, too. However, as is with methylphenidate (Ritalin), they often confer psychostimulant effects as well.

Your conclusion seems justified.
