Is it possible to combine charcoal and graphite in one image?

Im drawing an image with quite a large range of tones and I plan to draw the darker tones in charcoal. However I used a graphite pencil for the preparatory drawing. Is it still possible to draw with charcoal even on an area where graphite has been applied or do I have to prepare the area before adding the charcoal?
