stripped shower screw

my shower door (hinged) is sagging because the top screw that holds the hinged side of the door in place is stripped. I can't screw it in to raise the bottom of the door on the opposite side. Is there a way to fix that stripped screw without having to replace the entire door?

I think we need to know what the screw was screwed into--in the first place, before we recommend any repair ideas. More info please, and better yet--picture(s). David

stripped shower screw

thanks for responding - I'll have to take a picture. The screw is the one that holds the hinge into the metal jamb that is attached to the shower stall. The shower stall is fiberglass.
