I just have a quick question. I am on tri-sprintec and have been taking it perfectly with 1 or 2 missed ones the whole time I've been on it.

I apparently missed my mouth when I was popping my pill in and I couldn't find it on the floor. I was on the first pill of the last week which I know are sugar pills. Does it matter if I missed this one? I can't find it.

Nope, the sugar pills only act as place-holders to keep you on track with taking the pills. So, not taking them doesn't make a difference.
