Question Antipshychotic mediated EPS timing

I found this topic very confusing because the timeline of symptoms development is different in FA from what Dr Raymon and different what Dr Daugherty say:

Dr Raymon says pseudoparkinsonism develop within hours fallowed by dystonia within days and akathisia within weeks, TD within months.
Dr Daugherty says dystonia- 1 week, akinesia- 2 weeks, rigidity-3 weeks, tremor- 6 weeks, acathisia -10 weeks, pisa and rebbit symptoms >18 weeks.
FA distonia - 4hrs, akathisia - 4days, parkinsonism - 4weeks, TD-4 months.

What do you think? Do we have to know specific times or just the order? if yes which ones are more correct?
