The following link is the installation instructions for your faucet.

Basically, what you need to do is gently pry the cap (with the hot/cold indicator) off the top of the handle. This will expose a screw-head, that you tighten to fix the looseness or loosen to remove the handle. If it's the other part of the handle that's loose (the bit that sticks out sideways rather than the whole handle). I've attached a diagram of how that is attached.

Cold water handle on my American Standard cold water control just spins around with out turning on the water


There is an adapter from the faucet stem to the handle. A small gray plastic faucet part that frequently causes problems for many owners. You will need to call American Standard and ask for a new handle stem connector. The faucet came with a limited lifetime warranty and the part should be free. While you are getting one, you might as well get another for the other handle. American Standard's phone number is 1-800-442-1902.

I'm leaning towards handle adapter over cartridge. It is plastic and doesn't tolerate a lot of stress. Go to the link below for parts breakdown and A/S hotline number at the bottom left of page. A/S should also be able to provide you with the correct replacement cartridge and/or part number for your roman tub faucet.
