How do I save her???

#Codiaeum this poor gal is withering away and I don’t know what to do to help. I repotted 3weeks ago bc she had lost half her leaves with no new growth and her root ball was looking small. Named pic is right after I repotted, this one’s today. I’ve got her in a plastic pot with drainage and a soil mix of coast of Maine 1/2 succulent mix 1/2 growers mix, a little extra perlite added, which she’s been in since I got her over a year ago (repotted twice).
2ft to light, direct
5” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 months ago
She's probably still acclimating to her new environment. What made you repot? In the future, I wouldn't automatically repot because it can shock them worse. If there's root rot then yes, repot but I try not to mess with them too much if they're not doing well. Good luck! ❣️πŸͺ΄
Thanks for the response, I hope she’s just acclimating! I repotted when I first got her over a year ago, then again 3 weeks ago bc she was wilting, lost 3/7 leaves with no new growth, and I was worried about rot so checked her roots; no rot but root ball looked too small for the pot I had her in, so gave her something more snug.
