(character limit? Anyway, here's the rest: )

Step three. Leave it alone. Cover the sides of the cage with paper or something so it can't see any movement and bustle outside the cage. Don't handle the lizard unless medically necessary. Don't pester it. Don't stare at it. DON'T pull it out from a safe hiding place unless it's seriously important to do so. Give it time to settle into its new home.

If you're patient, it will calm down. Someday it might even be friendly, though some never are. At some point, a fresh stool sample should be taken to an experienced herp vet to check for parasites, which are likely. The stress it's under now and in the recent past are likely to have increased any parasite load it was carrying.

Hopefully this is helpful - I don't know your experience, so put down everything I thought might help. So if I'm telling you things you already know, well...better safe than sorry.

Good luck.
