A South Burlington woman is suing the maker of the drug Vioxx, which was taken off the market this week after concerns about its safety.
The lawsuit by Sara Cheeseman is believed to be the first of its kind in the state.
The maker of Vioxx, Merck, recently withdrew the drug from the worldwide market after studies found the drug may increase a person's risk for a heart attack or stroke.
