Taking in consideration that you've only had it for 10 days, it might take some time before it settles in. Also, the fact that it's getting medication adds to the stress. Have you had it checked for parasites? If not, you might just be causing the lizards unnecessary stress. I've got two imported frilleds that was in pretty bad shape, that are doing just fine now. No parasites in them at all to begin with.

However, having an import as a test frilled is not really that good of an idea, in my opinion, and a pretty weird one at that. You're starting off with a huge dissadvantage already. Not only are you having to get used to a new animal that you have never kept before, it's also stressed to hell and back because it's been bouncing around the earth, probably been severely dehydrated, malnourished, and possibly have parasites. This is why it is not adviced to get imported frilleds. They might be cheaper, but give them one parasite treatment and you could have bought a squeeky clean frilled born in captivity. And that's if the medication helps. You might have lost the animal plus all your money spent on it.
