Q: treatment/prevention of combo menstrual basilar migraine

What options are available for treatment of basilar migraine which only occurs during the first several days of menses? An MRI was negative. There is also a history of mildly reduced platelet counts (110-120,000, which worsens during pregnancy). The symptoms consist of vertigo, vomiting and weakness without headache, and usually resolve after 3 days maximum. How effective are metaclopramide, phenergan, and NSAIDs? What about magnesium and other supplements  such as coq-10, B2, B6 etc? Please have your experts respond. Thanks.
