filling gaps

I noticed the tape at the joint between my ceiling and walls is bubbling - I began by cutting it out to replace and found that the prev owner just bridged the gap between the 2 areas with the tape - behind I found about 1-2.5" gap running the length of the ceiling and wall - I guess he cut the drywall too small - I'd like to fill this gap before retaping and completing the repair.

Is there a product - a caulking or fill that would work well to fill this gap - I would prefer to only have to repair this once.

Sounds like it should have been prefilled prior to taping. Basically you just fill it with joint compound, let it dry and then tape as you normally would.

Just reread your post, if the gap is really 2"+ you might need to cut a strip of drywall to bridge the gap between studs.
