Ceiling Sagging?


I am re-drywalling a wall and just noticed the ceiling is sagging past the seam.
It looks like it split from the tape. I have attached a picture. The beam is the header. Can I just put some drywall screws where the seam is? Thanks in advance.

Pictures to blury to see what's gong on.
Not going to do any harm adding screws, just make sure to push up on the ceiling and make sure to not pop through the paper and add enough so there not going to pop.

I know the pics are not great. On the left you can see the tape and the sagging starts right after that and goes about two feet.
