Chlorhexidine mouth washes are prescribed for 3 weeks. If used more than 4 weeks it can cause staining of teeth, stenosis of parotid duct, burning sensation of mucosa.

Using a mouthwash routinely will not cause any problems. it is an aid to brushing. as long as you do the rinsing properly 1-2 times a day, you can enjoy really fresh Breath!
There are a lot of mouthwashes available these days which are good and are specifically for daily use.

i dont know why you want to use mouth wash daily when you are brushing the teeth. it is given when there is some disease. these things should be used only when it is needed
