Crabgrass / Broadleaf Herbicides - Too Close Together?

I live in Nebraska, and we had snow as late as 3 weeks ago. So I put down my crabgrass prevention stuff about 2 weeks ago. My problem is this - I am now getting dandelions in my yard. Lots. And I'm worried that if I put down broad-leaf herbicide anytime soon, I will over-fertilize my lawn, and burn it. I know very, very little about lawn care, but I'm interested in learning. Right now, my only source of information is the herbicide/fertilizer timing chart at Menards where I buy my stuff. Am I right that I need to wait to take care of my broad-leaf issue?
Thanks for any help and suggestions!

Time-released fertilizers can slowly release nutrients from 2-8 months. Make sure you provide enough interval between fertilizing to allow the previous application to finish, thereby avoiding over-fertilization and possibly burning your lawn with the next application.

Just get a weed control product without fertilizer.
