Can prescription retinoids be layered with a moisturizer? ?

ErHi all

My doctor prescribed me Epiduo (0.1% adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide) for my acne. 

I only use it at night before bed on my entire chin (where all my acne is concentrated), but because it is so incredibly drying i was wondering if i can layer a moisture on top once the treatment has settled into my skin? 

Will this be ok? Do i need to wait for a certain amount of time before adding a moisturizer or should i avoid adding a moisturizer?
