When I was young, over 40 yrs ago, I was treated for hyperthyroidism. I am currently taking Lisinopril for HBP. I had been taking Detrol, but since the insurance no longer covers that, I was prescribed Oxybutynin. It seems to be effective but I seem to have trouble sleeping. This is not unusual for me but I'm wondering if it's activating my thyroid.

Oxybutynine has a side effect of insomnia and restlessness. The drug can aggravate hyperthyroid and hypertension! This is definitely not a good drug for you. Perhaps your Dr would be willing to appeal to your insurance company that you have had a trial of Oxybutynin and it is not compatible with your other diagnosis and that the Detrol is medically necessary in your case.
