Multiple options: The best idea is to stop migraines from developing. Preventive treatments include: medications, procedures-botox, nutritional supplements, increased exercise, and avoidance of migraine triggers. Treatments once a migraine develops include nsaid's (motrin), triptans (sumatriptan) amount others. There is not, to my knowledge, a specific treatment for basilar migraine. Get help-neurologist.
