Can I texturize over already painted walls?

We are remodeling our bathroom and plan to add knock-down texture to the walls. Currently, the walls are painted. Is any prep required to the walls, or can we texturize right over the paint?

I imagine you will need a really good primer to help the texture material stick to the walls.  Let the folks know at your local paint store and I bet they will have a good recommendation.
