Probenecid changes the body's ability to excrete other substances. It's used to treat gout (because it increases uric acid excretion) and sometimes by athletes to cheat drug tests (because it decreases the excretion of some performance-enhancing drugs). In the early days of penicillin therapy, when that drug was in short supply, they used probenecid to keep the penicillin in patients' bodies longer, thus conserving it.
