Ali, countersinking the drywall screws 1/8 in into the drywall seems excessive to me. That will result in cutting through the paper layer, greatly diminishing the holding power the screw exerts. I recommend using one of those drywall Philips bits that automatically release the screw at the proper depth. They're cheap and do a great job. Not sure what that construction adhesive on top of the screw would really do for you other than wasting your precious time. Remember, this will be dry. One-time mortar contact is unlikely to corrode the screws.

Ooops, CX beat me to it.
