verb endings

I'm writing a composition for my spanish class & i'm very confused with the verb endings. It is about what we recommend another student to do if they are sick.

How do I fix the endings on these?

"toce piladora si mareado en el autobus."
"tome el jarabe para la tos...."
"si el torcerse o esguince el tobillo durante beisbol, tome aspirina y descanse."

I believe that "cambio(s)" is usually followed by "de", not "en" (something you just have to memorize), but a native Spanish speaker may correct me on that. See if you can fix the verbs in your other sentences.
(From another non native) I think you'd do better with "necesita/debe cambiar sus hábitos".

Try using indicative present tense, third person singular, of the verb quedar.

"cambios sus hábitos" definitely needs a preposition after cambios.

See if you can improve it.

also, i wanted to say " chris stays healthy very well, but i have some recommendations for changes in his habits." in spanish i put,

" Chris quedare saludable muy bien, pero yo tengo alguna recomendaciones para cambios sus hábitos.

my teacher said 'quedare' should be a different word. but i dont know any other words that might fit. she also didnt like "cambios", but I dont know what was wrong with it.

If you are using usted form, "tome" is the (positive) imperative of the verb tomar.

For the first sentence, I would say "Tome pastilla . . ." I'm not sure if it should be "está mareado," "se siente mareado," or something else.

For your last sentence, you need to straighten out whether you want it to be in second person or third person.
