    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.
