Try this piece of code -

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

            ShowPdf(CreatePDF());
        }
        private byte[] CreatePDF()
        {

            var output = new MemoryStream();

            var reader = new PdfReader(("your WorkDirectory " + "\\" + "doc.pdf"));

            var stamper = new PdfStamper(reader, output);

            AddContent(stamper);

            stamper.FormFlattening = true;
            stamper.Close();
            reader.Close();

            return output.ToArray();

        }


        void AddContent(PdfStamper stamper)
        {

            var form = stamper.AcroFields;

            form.SetField("firstname", "John");
        }

        private void ShowPdf(byte[] strS)
        {
            Response.ClearContent();
            Response.ClearHeaders();
            Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
            Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + DateTime.Now);
            Response.BinaryWrite(strS);
