Default Chlorine and carbonate removal

Using campden tablets to remove chloroamine and CRS to reduce carbonate, does it matter which treatment goes first?

I wouldn't think so, because they target different chemicals, but there may be some odd interaction where say campden is inhibited by the presence of carbonates, or vice versa... I don't think so though. campden targets the chlorine and releases it, and carbonates are a different compound that breaks up w/ the CRS and creates new balanced water state.
