I have gotten pretty bad withdrawals from drugs I was only on for a few days. So I know from first hand experience it does happen. Not only that, but within that 5 days a cascade of events had already begun to take place in the brain and hormones. So even after the drug is gone, those events need to reverse back to baseline. With me, that usually takes minimum 3 days maximum 14 days...after the drug is completely gone, not after the last dose.

It is my hunch, without clinical evidence, that longterm antipsychotic use sets one up for having very unpredictable and very reactive responses to getting on and getting off meds, probably something to do with receptors being blocked for several years. After that period of time, their sensitivity is a lot different than it used to be.
