Not sure what you mean by raised but I'd say cut it out and mud over it. Think of it this way you can't fill mountains only holes.

Hi, What do you mean by cut it out? Just splice down the middle (where it is raised) or do you mean take out the etire piece of drywall tape?

A thin bladed putty knife will take down all of the high spots, then just fill in with mud and bingo you have a nice seam.

cut out the raised sections, you don't need to be to picky. If you can get the cut out spots low enough use drywall tape to "Stick on mesh type" to help hold things together and help it from sagging again. If the spots you cut out are deep put on several thin layers of mud or try using "sheet rock" mud (dries quicker)
