    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 923/707/D=1434) No, you should recite Sana after takbir tahrimah and then read اعوذ بالله من الشيطن الرجيم and then بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم i.e. read them before Surah Fatiha. Do not read it before durood, dua or sana etc as it is not proved. Clarification: However, if someone is muqtadi i.e. he is offering salah behind any imam then he should only read sana not اعوذ بالله من الشيطن الرجيم and بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم. (L)
