Can a overdrive pedal work under a distrotion pedal?

I wondering because I want to buy the zakk overdrive pedal and a dime distortion pedal.I just want to know if this will work to build tone and just work good all around.
It can work, but adding too much overdrive underneath the dist can sound bad. Alot of people use an overdrive underneath their initial distortion as a boost during solos.
to boost another pedal i would just use a preamp booster, i think it would be better. you could check out tubescreamers too, gets you a nice smoot overdrive and will give you that extra bite too!
