The equation is separable.

After inserting missing parentheses, the equation reads:

dy/dx = 2(e^x-e^-x)/[y^2(e^x+e^-x)^4 ]

which can be separated to give:

y^2 dy = 2(e^x-e^-x)/(e^x+e^-x)^4 dx

Note that on the right hand side, the numberator is the derivative of the one term of the denominator, which makes for a convenient substitution.

Integrate both sides:

y^3/3 = -2/[3(e^x+e^-x)^3]+C

What's left is to do the algebraic manipulations to yield an explicit form.
