Night time dippers to normal in fact shows that there high blood pressure during the day is not as significant. Absence of the night time dipping effect is one of the key facts doctors use whether someone needs medicines or not.  This is a good discussion to have with your Dr.
 
In general - the only person who can diagnose hypertension or who should start and stop your medications is your GP or a specialist - either a cardiologist or a hospital physician. 
 
Kindly,
