In brief: No, not really.

Warfarin interferes with your body's ability to clot blood, so it is useful in people who have blood clots or in those who my be susceptible to abnormal clotting.
In very very rare cases, warfarin may have been associated with a type of kidney damage, but this association is not well understood and even controversial as to its very existence. Routine monitoring of kidney function is adequate.
