Blue tape the finished drywall to keep it clear of the adhesive you pick out to use, it can be almost some thing. Construction adhesive or painters caulk might be my choice. Push up at the rough in to expose the distance if feasible of the higher drywall surface and difficult in lip. Inject a whole lot of the tube inside the space, it will likely be messy, have paper on the floor.
