If so what color would or could it be? I found my fathers old prescription bottles that are very hard to read I can barley make out oxycodone 30mg but it's a red liquid with a bitter taste
It does come in liquid. The last color I remember seeing it in was green but I'm sure different manufacturers and even different strengths can come in different colors and flavors. If the liquids are older than a few months old, they need to be tossed. It sounds like these have likely been around for a bit and are probably no longer any good. If your father is no longer taking them or they are old, you might see about a "Drug Take Back Program" some of the fire and police stations offer them, as do some pharmacies or you can dispose of them by mixing them with an unpalatable substance like used coffee grounds or kitty litter, put the mixture in a coffee can or like container to keep it out of reach of kids or dogs that might get into trash and dispose of it that way.
Hi R3BL and welcome to the site. It can or could be without aspirin. I don't know what you have there though and I sure wouldn't be taste testing it either. This is nothing to mess with. Do not take this for yourself even if you think you are taking the same thing. The liquid measure and tablets are not comparable. It is better to dump it and be rid of it than for it to accidentally get into the wrong hands and kill someone.
Oxycodone 30 mg, such as a Malinckrodt 30, Activis30, or Qualitest 30(the V's) have no aspirin..the only one with aspirin is a percodan. Percocets have acetominophen which cause liver damage. Oxycodone comes in a rather weak form known as Oxydose, if I remember correctly. I used to add that to my coffee in the morning
