I just got an prescription for restasis & lotemax (loteprednol). The lotmax will be used for only 2 weeks. Does it matter which one I put in 1st? How long do I wait between?

In brief: Eye drops

Order does not matter but wait 5 minutes between the meds.

In brief: Eye meds

Both are anti-inflammatory.
Restasis is for inflammation-related dry eyes. Lotemax (loteprednol) is an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid for the eyes. If there is a specific order in which the drops should be administered, your eye doc would be the best one to tell you that as well as whether you need to wait between administering them.
