What application did you create the PDF in. If it was Adobe Acrobat Pro then you can open the PDF and the click "Save Other" and choose Reduced size PDF. If that isn't the application then I would need to know specifically what PDF application created the file.

Lots of PDF products can do it. Here are five examples (there are many more):

Adobe Acrobat
Save As Other>Reduced Size PDF
Save As Other>Optimized PDF

Coherent PDF
command line tool...option is -squeeze

Foxit PhantomPDF
File>Reduce File Size
File>Optimize Scanned PDF
File>PDF Optimizer

Nuance Power PDF

Tracker PDF-XChange Editor
File>Save as Optimized
