I'm pleased to hear that you are feeling OK, indeed maybe better, on the forced lower dose ( so long as this isn't an early manic episode ! ) Maybe you were indeed on a higher doe than you needed --- but only a proper in-person assessment by a specialist who knows you, could helpfully clarify this.
Yes, I strongly dislike Aterax, and am amazed that it is still allowed on the market --- probably because it was approved for sale so long ago and has never been re-examined, is still profitable for the manufacturers, and sill prescribed by old-fashioned doctors. There are FAR far better meds for insomnia, and far safer.
I understand your frustration with the doctor who didn't help or complete the appeal form properly. That was part of his job to do that earnestly and well.
I understan your concerns and other more specific questions, but ONLY your new shrink, after a proper detailed asessment, can answer them usefully
