I have been off Paxil (paroxetine) for 5 days now the withdrawal symptoms are terrible. I don't want to go back on Paxil (paroxetine) should I take. Prozac in low dose for help?

In brief: NO

You dont stop Paxil (paroxetine) or any medication in this group ( ssri) at once.
You should have gone off it gradually. Ifd you dont need it dont start any medication. Your symptoms will go away gradually.
