Drywall touchups - ok after 1st coat of primer?

Since paint is unforgiving of even small flaws, I noticed some divots and ridges on my new drywall after I started applying the first coat of primer. Can I apply some filler to the divots over the paint, and then maybe apply another coat of primer?
Please advise!

Yep. It's the preferred way of doing it. The primer highlights all of the imperfections in that "perfect" spackling job. I use MH Ready Patch or just the regular joint compound, depending on how quickly I want to get the paint on. Touch-up the primer to prevent flash through (when the paint sheen changes due to non-uniform substrate preparation).

Use a shoplight to highlight portions of the work. This will help show up flaws.
